McVeigh Consulting realised the significant advantages of removing all joints in an External H.D. Pavement, and so designed a “Seamless” Dramix 4D Combi Slab for the new 10,000m2 facility at the Port of Brisbane. Logos were again keen to have this solution for their new facility, which was built by McNab as one of their first steel fibre reinforced projects. QR Contracting placed the Boral concrete to a very high quality finish, in very tough conditions, and the facility is in full operation within a few weeks.

WWWHP (World Wide Warehouse Hai Phong) continued building the next phrase of their renting warehouse. The project is a suspended slab with 5400m2 floor area. The client wanted to have a flat floor according to Fm2 – TR34, the floor has been cast using a strip method, utilising a Dramix®  4D Combi slab solution enabling tight crack control and removing expansion joints.

This project is for the external pavement for the new Dinding facility in Lumut. The pavement is reinforced with Dramix®  3D fibre for heavy traffic load. The slab has a broomed finish to add friction on the road for traffic. This project is still ongoing, Main contractor by ETEC (Korea) consultant by Royal Haskoning and external slab executed by Sathia Construction.

Dramix 4D Combi Slab allowed for significant reduction in slab thickness from Conventional Design, including Client requirement for fully-loaded Container Pavement (no BPA reduction factor applied), the removal of Saw Cuts also attractive for long-term maintenance savings.

As any owner of a commercial facility knows the concrete slab is the life line of the operation, if it fails its very difficult to operate and keep up the demands of the day to day efficiencies required of any commercial operation. This is why the Dramix Combi Slab option offers such a perfect solution. With the removal of not only saw cuts but also dowelled joints, the risk of the slab not being operational from a damaged joint is completely eliminated.
With the removal of joints the overall slab can also be designed thinner and more robust and this is why container yards are now opting for this solution, the benefits far out way the risk of a failed slab.
Well done to Kerman’s, Perth Concrete Services and Holcim for an excellent job.

Griya Idola Industrial Park just launched a new industrial area in Tangerang, west of Jakarta. The pavement is prepared for heavy truck loads and long term usage. Original design is 300mm thick slab with K400 concrete reinforced by 2 layer of wiremesh M8. This was completely replaced with Dramix 3D fibres, first slab was cast in 2014 and still continue until today.

The new 27,000sqm Northline facility in Regency Park, South Australia utilised the tried and tested Dramix fibre only jointless solution for the internal slabs. With the external slabs adopting a Dramix Combi Slab, enabling the removal of all saw cuts and all dowelled joints from the pavement. Having no joints makes for the most efficient design with the additional benefit of long term reduced maintenance cost with the removal of costly jointing systems.
